Olympus MCON-P02 Reviews

Useful, but with reservations

By Allen

Pros: The lens fits well on the 45 mm lens. Easy to use. Truly allows you to 'go macro' with an existing lens Cons: Sharp focus is difficult to achieve....you really need to use focus bracketing. Significant focus drop-off on the edges

Decent for a macro dabbler

I'm interested in macro but not so interested at the moment that I wanted to purchase a macro lens. Pairing this with a M.Zuiko 25mm gets me what I want: magnification for finer details, without the expense of a traditional macro lens that I may not use that often.

Good alternative to a separate macro lens.

Using this on an Olympus Pen E-PL1 with an older 14-42 mm lens with a 40.5 mm thread. (The newer lens is 37 mm. so had to get a different adapter.) The images are sharp, auto-focus works fine; very pleased with the lens.

High Quality Macro Converter

Got this for the Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Lens. Found out it fits the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens, giving it better than 1:1 ratio.

Macro Converter (MCON)

A nice introduction into macro photography for lenses with 37mm & 46mm lens threads. I use it on my Olympus EZ lens. It's small and preserves the pancake dimensions. It works without having to take off the adapter for a normal zoom range as you would with various closeup filter strengths.

Does what it says

I bought this to experiment with my Olympus 45mm 1.8 as a macro lens. It works as expected. You'll want to be using manual focus while using this. Auto focus tends to hunt a lot even in good light, but with macro manual focus is probably best anyway. I do not have a dedicated macro lens and if you're someone who's looking for the types of features available on the 60mm macro, you should prob just buy the 60mm macro. But if you're a dabbler like me, this is a nice, inexpensive way to start taking some macro.

Superb 46mm Achromatic Doublet Macro filter

By Chris
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-08-27

This is no ordinary single element magnifier, but an Achromatic two lens close up filter. Hence, good sharpness AND color rendition. Should ONLY be used on a 46mm thread, or less. NO step up ring from 46mm, to say 58, else vignetting or other 'artistic' issues will crop up. Easy to use in the field... and for light space saving packing.

Adds versatility to existing kit

I love this little piece of glass. Once you get used to the relatively restricted the focal range it's a lot of fun to be able to get up close with your subjects. Definitely quite different from a dedicated macro lens but adds versatility to the lenses you already have without needing to shell out too much. I have mostly been using it with the Oly 45mm f/1.8, a lens that I'd often felt had a frustratingly long minimum focal distance, and it opens up a lot of fun possibilities.

Has anyone tried this with Lumix lenses like the 25mm or 42.5mm F1.7?
Asked by: Federico
This is a close up lens filter. It natively will mount on any lens with a 46mm filter thread including the Lumin 25mm and with an adapter fit on the Lumix G 42.5mm with its 37mm filter thread. You will have closer focusing with either.

question

is it true 1 x 1 macro or more like 1 x 2 or 1 x 4?
Asked by: Bob O.
I've used the lens adapter on the M. 45mm and I find the lens is OK but very limited in the distance variation . . . the seems to be a sweet spot for the distance from the object and if you move closer or further you lose focus and the depth of field is extremely shallow . . . if you like that effect. Since Olympus has offered a new macro lens that is not humungus . . . the M.ZUIKO ED 30MM F3.5 MACRO, I will purchase that one.
